Here are some different sugar skulls I made. The first batch were lighter and the second batch was darker. I used a wash of black to bring out the details. Then I went over with layers of glitter to make the glowing eyes.
I'm a smitten kitten with my chubby owls! I went a little crazy with the paint job on these. There are lots of layers of paints, pigments, and glazes.
I really like the folktales of Krampus. I decided to create ornaments with this anti-Santa figure. I have always enjoyed the old cards and illustrations of Krampus. They were delightfully macabre.
Speaking of Santa, I sculpted this. I'm not sure if I'll cast it or not. I'm not super into Santa. I thought that maybe I could turn this into a Belsnickel ornament.
